Exit question: Didn’t House Republicans recently offer to end the shutdown in exchange for delaying the individual mandate?
Yeah, and I seem to recall that you excoriated them for their fecklessness, favoring instead the “Let it burn” approach:
If ever there was a moment to give the public a hard lesson in what liberal utopianism can do, this is it. There are new stories about economic and logistical headaches related to O-Care in the media every day. If you’re confident that this train is headed off the tracks, then shouldn’t let-it-burners want to toss some coal in the engine and hurry it along? If Ted Cruz can’t convince the public to defund, maybe having to live with this giant boondoggle for awhile will, no?
So when you predictably come out favoring delay as a strategy, after opposing it, I think I’ll stick with the advice from my “betters” and just let it burn.
